Uruguay, Colombia Join Mexico On Road To Marriage Equality
Dec 06, 2012 by GayCities
This week Mexico’s top court ruled that all 31 provinces would have to recognize same-sex marriages performed in Mexico City. But our neighbor to the south isn’t the only Latin nation advancing toward marriage equality: Uruguay’s Chamber of Deputies is set to vote on the legalization of gay marriages on December 11.
With the measure likely to pass, it would then go before the senate by the fall of 2013.
Uruguay became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex civil unions, back in 2007. And eEarlier this year, the government approved recognition of same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.
The Argentina Independent notes there is some dispute about name order for children in same-sex families, but the issue should be resolved by next week.
Marriage equality is also under consideration in Colombia, where a bill legalizing same-sex nuptials passed a preliminary vote on Tuesday. Not surprisingly, there is ample opposition from conservatives there: After the vote, Senator Edgar Espíndola claimed the measure would open the door to bestiality, necrophilia and pedophilia.
Oh c’mon, Sen. Espíndola—can’t you at least be original? It’s always the bestiality with you people.
